The turtles were REALLY busy this week!

Twelve nests were laid over the past 7 days with 4 of those on Friday! We've also had a lot of false crawls (mothers crawl onto the beach but don't lay their eggs) which means the mother turtles have been VERY busy! The mother turtle of nest 8 did a very, very good job of disguising her nest as you can see in the picture below. The Turtle Patrol dug and dug, and then dug some more before finding the eggs a bit beyond where they expected the eggs to be. It took a couple of hours and thanks their diligence the eggs were found and relocated to a safer location.
